New ‘Byzantium’ Trailer Shows the Darker Side of Vampirism

Byzantium Trailer
StudioCanal

While ‘Twilight’ was all about the fun side of being a vampire — glittering skin, super strength and speed, and looking like Adonis for all eternity — the latest ‘Byzantium‘ trailer shows what it really means to live forever gorging on blood.

‘Interview with the Vampire’ director Neil Jordan brings us a vampire tale for a new generation with Gemma Arterton (‘Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters’) and Saoirse Ronan (‘The Host’) in the leads. This immortal pair have been vagabonds for centuries, but when they reach a coastal town, Ronan’s Eleanor falls in love with a human, played by Caleb Landry Jones (aka “Banshee” from ‘X-Men: First Class’), to whom she reveals her secrets.

The new ‘Byzantium’ trailer, which debuted on Yahoo Movies UK, reveals some tag lines and marketing ploys that are eerily similar to ‘Twilight’ — the whole “when you live forever…” sort of thing — only this time, the love story involves a lot more bloodshed and imagery that borders the line of horror. Watch it in full below:
